Magazine Description

In this issue

In this issue of Domus India, we look at a set of aerial images of Chennai’s public transport networks that documents the manifestation of the city’s tryst with its geographical sprawl, and its gradual transformation through history. Further, as we move closer to the final shape of the exhibition The State of Architecture, co-curated by Kaiwan Mehta along with Rahul Mehrotra and Ranjit Hoskote, many ideas as well as many arguments and concerns, are captured in an exclusive interview with the three curators. We review the work of artist Pratap More, whose exhibition of intricate paper works delves into issues of contemporary urban environment. The skilful use of the dynamic expressions of materials and lighting by Collaborative Architecture for an office building in Bengaluru pushes the boundaries of public space design benchmarks, making architectural lighting the raison detre defining the space – not just in terms of style and aesthetics, but as tectonic manipulation of the space. We examine Archohm’s designs for Toll Plazas across the country, focussing on how architecture can influence a positive shift in infrastructure and productivity-conducive workspace design. And lastly, we discuss how a carefully crafted architectural intervention by Design Urban Office Architects for a pre-school and learning centre hints towards a shift in urban space design, breaking away from the typology of urban industrial estates that result in interior-box designs.
